So, reading a couple of the other threads here I realize I can't really recommend sim time based on how little I've used it myself (desktop heli sim is another story). I'm thinking there are 2 fatal flaws with the built-in simulator that maybe we can pressure DJI to remedy: 1. WHY must the phantom be connected?! Am I missing a way to skip this? I'm 100 times less likely to pull the TX and iPad out and fly a few virtual laps if I have to also get the phantom and battery out. Can an iOS or android device not emulate whatever is going on across that connection? 2. Boring. Since it's a no-consequence simulator, how about some challenge? Obstacle courses, time trials, precision target tracking and landing. I'm sure they don't have a lot of development time to spare over there, but when you consider the increased eyes-on time for their app, maybe they'd be inclined to find some Given those things, I might actually use the sim to run the TX battery down pre-recharge, which currently is an exercise in either nerves (flying with low TX battery) or patience (listening to that blasted "you forgot about me" beep every couple minutes). Am I missing something? Has everyone just written it off as basically worthless?
